The report, London Cost of Living: Cold Homes, written by Murad Qureshi, London Assembly Labour Group Environment spokesperson, calls on the Mayor to take action and help Londoners by:
- Setting up a Home Energy Advice Team, which would be a single point of contact for people needing help or assistance with fuel bills, insulation and energy efficiency, and;
- Establishing a de-centralised energy research project to look at setting up energy cooperatives across London.
The report also received evidence that people have returned food to food banks as they have not been able to afford to cook it.
